Ayushmann Khurrana Pens An Emotional Tribute For Surekha Sikri
Aayushmann Khurrana penned a tribute for veteran actor Surekha Sikri, who died on Friday morning after suffering a heart attack.
The demise of Surekha Sikri has made Ayushmann emotional. The actor took to his social media profile and penned a long note, expressing his grief and recalled his experience of working with the veteran actor in 'Badhaai Ho'.
The note read, "In every film we have a family and we end up spending more time with the film family than our own families. One such beautiful family was in Badhaai Ho. Out of all my films, it was the perfect family with a perfect cast. Surekha Sikri was the head of our family, who was more progressive than the entire family tree. You know what, that was her in real life too. A complete boho. A chiller. Young at heart”
“I remember when she was boarding an auto rickshaw after the screening of our film, Tahira and I gave her a lift back home and we said “ma’am you are the real star of our film” and she replied “wish I get more work.” Tahira and I were speechless. We watched her frail demeanour walking towards her building. That’s my last memory of her”
“I would request you to watch her recite Faiz Ahmed Faiz’s nazm “Mujh-se pehli si mohabbat mere mehboob na maang.” Aapko unse aur mohabbat ho jaayegi. An impeccable performer. A consummate artiste. A legend. You’ll be missed Surekha ma’am. Thank you for the beautiful memories. #RIPSurekhaSikri” read the full note.
